Christmas and New Year Celebrations on the Cape Point Route

Cape Town puts her party shoes on in summer and Christmas and New Year celebrations abound. Cape Town buzzes with events and energy.  With the festive season upon us, we have gathered information about the Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year Parties on the Cape Point Route.

So if you are from out of town,  or if you are a local and don’t feel like the stress of cooking a full Christmas Dinner or organising a party then let our restaurants prepare your Christmas dinner! We recommend booking early as restaurants are very popular over Christmas.

Have a lekker Christmas and enjoy the New Year’s eve parties (one of the biggest party nights in Cape Town!).  The selection here will be updated as applicable and news and events will be loaded on our Cape Point Route facebook page throughout the summer festive season.

Happy holidays to everyone!

BLUE WATER CAFE: Imhoff Farm, Kommetjie

Blue Water Café serves delicious New Cape-style dishes and authentic pizzas, made with the freshest free range ingredients. Steeped in old-world charm, the Café is housed in the original homestead building and surrounding gardens. The atmosphere is family-friendly and unpretentious; and the sweeping views of Noordhoek Beach and Chapman’s Peak are simply breathtaking. Blue Water Cafe prides itself on using fresh ingredients so there is no set Christmas menu but all Christmas specials will be written up on the boards and will depend on what fresh ideas they come across with what is fresh and available! Sounds good to us! CLICK HERE FOR MORE ON BLUE WATER CAFE AT CHRISTMAS

WHARFSIDE GRILL: Mariners Wharf, Hout Bay

The Wharfside Grill at Mariners Wharf is internationally acclaimed as one of Africa’s best seafood restaurants, not only for its authentic habourside ambience and spectacular views, but also because the food it serves, the lobsters, the prawns and the appetising sea-fresh dishes such as Fisherman’s Baskets make it well worth a visit! Seating over 350 diners, privacy does not take second place, as there are six private dining cabins themed to seafaring history and famous ships, such as the Queen Mary and those of the Union Castle which frequented the Cape. Open 7 days per week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Wharfside Grill will offer a normal Christmas sitting on Christmas Eve and Christmas day and are offering dinner on New Years Eve (no party!) but please note the restaurant closes before midnight on 31 Dec 2011. CLICK HERE FOR WHARFSIDE GRILL MENU
